Funny story: When I was about eight, nine years old, I had these arts and crafts rhinestones. At night I would sit in a corner and shine a flashlight on them because I loved how they glowed like treasure. I thought they were the most beautiful things in existence. I even admired them during the day by draping a blanket over my head.

(I’m still a lady in waiting, but I have a gorgeous garnet ring that I still, after a year of wear, gaze at obsessively)

I’m going to say that it’s natural to enjoy beautiful, symmetrical, sparkly things. Otherwise I have serious issues. 😛

loveapril…I feel your vanity. I’m the SAME way. I just got my ring on Saturday (YAY) and I can’t stop staring at it. Seriously! I was taking notes in class and I kept getting distracted and stopped paying attention to the teacher. 🙂

My center diamond is .75 ct and and the surrounding diamonds are maybe .1-.2 so I can’t even imagine what it’s like to stare at a 1ct (like yours) let alone 2 or more!

Don’t feel vain! Enjoy it!!!

Yeah, I just got my ring last Thursday, so I sit in class staring down at it… pretty. Lol! I feel kind of ridiculous, like people are going to think I’m looking for attention. I’m not! I just can’t stop checking it out.

loveapril, I feel the same way!  Mine is an aquamarine (the stone is from an heirloom earring) and sometimes I feel like it looks like different shades of blue in different lights so ALL I EVER DO is stare at it.  Whatever, it’s a compliment to our FIs!

haha i feel like it is a good thing to love your ring so much! the time i always tend to stare at it is when i’m driving because my hand is right in front of me on my steering wheel… probably not a good thing to be distracted by a bright shiny object while i’m driving though lol

I stare at my ring ALL the time!

The worst is when I stare at while driving LOL! I drive with my left hand on the top of the steering wheel and when it catches the light it catches my eye… so bad!!!!

Edit: @Bloodgo1 – hopefully we aren’t on the same road at the same time 😉

Had mine for 9 months now, and still stare at it. I mostly stare at it at work, while I feel like doing nothing

I do it all the time since I’ve been engaged in Dec!  When I bored at work, I stare at my ring and get a fuzzy feeling and then I go back to work.  I do this many times each day at work.  I have a 1 ct. solitaire that flawless and colorless and it’s ideally cut.  My honey definitely did his research and chose quality over size. I love looking at my ring and how it sparkles. I sometimes wonder how long this phase will last.
